? is it the electronsics? is it the employees or the trains? i would like to talk to shawn elsbernd and he's worked hard on it, but if it is found -- if there are specific places to target whether technical or in personnel we do need to focus on that. as for free rides for youth i am screechish at the idea of just giving away free rides like that. i would like greatly reduced and families and where they need it but a blanket and children grow up and learn that is just something they should expect i do have a problem with that. i do want to help those in need but that isn't the first way to do it. >> all right. thank you. mr. crowley. >> muni moves more than bart. it's the biggest in the united states. for the on time performance it's tough to get around traffic and mitigation but they have a plan afoot and bypass areas that have bus stops on every block and that is one way to improve performance. as far as free muni for kids i support that but in practice we don't have the budget to support it and that's my stance today. thank you. >> okay. >> i took muni to get here tonight. i share a car with my

're also joined by district 7 supervisor, sean he elsbernd, representing the save hetch hetchy no on f campaign. gentlemen, thanks so much for taking the time to be with us today. >> thank you. >> mike, i'd like to give you the opportunity to make a brief statement of your work on the proposition. >> wonderful, thank you. proposition f is about san francisco's values, it's about their environmental values. in real short explanation, it requires the city to develop a plan for the future to guarantee our water security and begin to undo the damage that our current water system does to the environment. the plan would then be brought back to the voters in 2016 for their aprafl or disapproval so it's placing the city on a trajectory we're not currently on. we don't recycle any water, we've abandoned most ground water since hetch hetchy became available and we've done real damage to the tuolome river and we begin it's time to get in line with the city's values. it's a plan the voters ultimately get to approve. >> i disagree. i think proposition f is about one thing and one thing only, a

elsbernd. i think he is a courageous man, and i am glad he saw fit to release those papers, because it did below the whistle on the administration, but he almost went to jail because of that. >> what do you remember of the day president nixon resigned? >> i remember that vividly. and i do not say i gloated over it, i did not. but i felt that justice was done in that case. and i felt the senate, house had approached the matter in a bipartisan way and the vote was overwhelmingly on the side of the president is stepping down. they did not actually take this step to expel him from office, but it was clear that was ahead if he did not step down. i felt that was a case where justice was served. i do not drop any particular glee over it. but i think it was the right course. >> president nixon was very afraid of edward kennedy running against him. i think at that time it was robert kennedy. i think ted kennedy seriously considered it, but i think it would've been in the summer of 1969 he came to the view that he just could not mount a successful presidential campaign after that tragedy. that it ha

has the support of five of supervisor farrell's colleagues. campos, elsbernd, chiu, weaner and cohen. >> do we have any commissioner comments? >> just for my own education, how is this going to work in 2014 when -- [multiple voices] >> explain that to folks [speaker not understood]. >> small businesses will be able to get the payroll expense tax exclusion with our legislation through 2016. it won't be until actually february of 2017 when they apply -- when they let the tax collector know about their -- the actual amount that they paid in payroll out for 2016. so, they actually -- and as gross receipts phases in, that will be starting 2014, their payroll tax liability will start to go down. so, in 2014 it reduces i think by 75%. so, it's 1-1/2% now and starting in 2014 it will be 75% of that. then slowly going down from there. >> thanks. >> any other commissioner comments? >> yeah, i would just say that this -- sorry to recap or go backwards here. it's basically to protect the small businesses to be not clobbered in the intervening years between now and when the gross receipts come in
